The Pinnacle's Cash Wheeler felt the full force of a Mike Tyson knockout punch on last night's AEW Dynamite, as the evening's special guest enforcer sent the FTR man to the shadow realm.
This went down while Chris Jericho was wrestling Dax Harwood. Having promised to play his enforcer's role straight, Tyson did just that early on, confiscating weapons from both wrestlers, despite his newfound respect for Jericho.
Things unrivalled later on, when The Pinnacle and Inner Circle poured out from the back, brawling as the match was still going on. To his detriment, Wheeler pushed the envelope a little too far. Attempting to whack Jericho with Le Champion's own baseball bat saw him punched out by 'Iron Mike,' which came moments before Jericho put Harwood away via Judas Effect.

The fight between the Inner Circle and Pinnacle was still going on as the bell rang. When it died down, Jericho introduced Tyson as a new ancillary member of the newly-babyfaced Inner Circle.
The Inner Circle and Pinnacle are set to collide in the first Blood & Guts match on 5 May.
